    173 auto-focus points, seriously, do you need that many?

    Really?! 173 auto focus points? I was happy with the 3 focus points on my D60. But I don't care what the D5 has because I'll never be able to afford it. LOL.

    ONLY 173 ??
    you would expect more .. from the crowd "it's never enough"

    Must be a full frame coverage for the focus points. or little bitty dots.

    It's odd though that it's only 20mp

    More focus points means more accurate tracking. There's pretty much no limit here.

    The only thing I'm truly looking forward to is the price dropping on the D4 or D3 S

    The question here is not how many AF it has but how is it spread in the viewfilder.
    My D750 has 51AF points which really is plenty but they are bunched in the centre which means I always have to keep subject in centre when shooting sports.
    I rather have 35AF points that are spread on all my view finder then 173 stuck in centre.
    We shall see soon enough I guess.

    Yes, the D5 is ultra boring.

    And I fail to see the point of even more AF points ... more cross points, sure. Larger area for the AF points, sure. Even less EV and its still operating, great. Support f/8 maximum aperture lenses, thats not bad either.

    But 150+ AF points instead of 50+ ? I fail to see how that will help me get better, or more, pictures.

    It won't make much difference if you shoot still life or portraits in a studio, but if you shoot moving wildlife or sports, the tracking will be infinitely better, as long as the focus points are spread out of over the viewfinder.

    Although, I think the 20MP resolution of the D5 will make it less desirable than the D810 for studio shooters.
